It actually doesn't exist.
I bought a regular Filco MX Red from The Keyboard Co across the pond, and then I bought a full set of the camo's keycaps from a forum member who wasn't using them. I replaced the AppsKey (the one to the left of the right Ctrl) with the FN key, and all of the F-Keys with those from the Camo board. I then wrote an AutoHotKey script to make the AppsKey (now FN key) + F-Keys functional. I'm very happy with the outcome - it's exactly what I wanted.
I was teetering on the edge of just going with the Filco Camo TKL, but a few things put me off. I use my left Windows key constantly for start menu shortcuts, as well as Win+D to show the desktop, Win+E for explorer, etc, and the Camo replaced it with the FN key, which is an internal switch and can't be remapped with software. The other issue is that I wanted red switches which obviously don't exist yet.
I use it primarily for gaming, and I simply included functions in my AutoHotKey script to detect when a game is open, and disable the windows keys when the game window is in focus. Solved all of my problems.
